  • Well worth the $2 admission fee...in fact I gave an extra dollar as a donation. Some of the outside areas are poorly maintained but overall this museum is worth a few hours of your time.  more »
  • After watching Pawn Star and Mark evaluate historic items, we decided it was worth a trip to visit the Clark County Heritage Museum. It was well worth the time and the expense ($2 adults, $1 seniors)....  more »
  • Nominal admission fee; indoor galleries, outdoor exhibits documenting life in the valley through the millennia. Railway station and houses reflecting different decades of Clark County are very interes...  more »

  • Been a Vegas local all my life and never knew this place existed until my dad brought it up one day. Me and my family went by to take a look and to my surprise it was a very simple yet wonderful place. The staff were friendly and the cost was very cheap. They had houses demonstrating how people used to live, interesting casino artifacts, a train, and so much more. Very happy I came here, walked around and experienced something new about my city. 5 stars for sure!!
  • This museum is so full of history. Heritage Street has 5 homes from different eras that have been moved to the museum and set up as if they were each still being lived in by the original owners. You get to walk through each house and step back in time. Each home is decorated for holidays according to the correct time frame they were built. A must see museum and grounds!
  • Love, love, love the museum. I was visiting my daughter out in Vegas and she has been wanting to see the museum. After church and dinner we went over to walk it. To our surprise, they were setting up the 50 crosses for the shooting victims of October 1st. The museum is a hidden gem for Vegas. It's a must to see. The history on Las Vegas and Nevada is wonderful. Cost only $2. Well worth it.
  • This is a great little museum. Older buildings have been re located here with some having the original furniture. Lots of parking and a very reasonable entrance fee. Places like this need supporting and I am really pleased to have visited here.
  • I loved this place! My 4 year old hada great time as well but I'll be back without her so I can't take my time with the reading on the history. Everyone here seems very nice. It's extremely inexpensive. You can spend most of your day here and still not see everything. The houses are my favorite part. Very cool how they're all put together. I'll be back for sure.
